They did it! It may not have been Plan A, or Plan B, or even Plan C…but Jenna and Reed are married and their wedding was beyond perfect in every way! The joy these two have is contagious and I could not be more honored to have been the one to capture the day they finally were able to become husband and wife! When Michigan’s COVID restrictions changed just two weeks before their wedding date, they had to find a completely new venue that could accommodate an outdoor wedding. These two handled all of these last minute changes with such grace, and in the end everything could not have been more perfect!
It’s days like these that have quickly made me fall in love with intimate wedding days. Jenna & Reed’s wedding was so special and full of the sweetest moments. Both Jenna’s groom and dad instantly burst into tears as soon as they turned around to see her during their first looks, definitely two of the sweetest first looks that I have ever captured. Their closest family and friends were overjoyed all day to celebrate these two, it is so clear that they are dearly loved by many!
After double dating with these two for the past few years (Reed and my husband used to work together!), it was so much for me to witness and be a part of their wedding day. These two really are the perfect match and their love and connection was SO evident as a bystander. They’re going to make a beautiful life together!
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Hondzinski!

Laura and Alex’s perfect wedding at The Armour House has set a whole new standard for 2020 intimate weddings! These two first met in 2015, when he was starting his career as a high school special-education teacher, and she was working for a social services agency in Chicago. After a series of dates that took them […]
Tanya and James are married! Their wedding day was proof that nothing can take away from your marriage, even if your wedding looks different than you originally planned. When the pandemic struck, they knew things needed to drastically change, so they decided to scale back their guest list to just immediate family and found a […]
Anna & Rich are MARRIED! The most amazing couple said “I do” in an intimate ceremony with their immediate families. These two met as medical workers in the army and have been stationed in separate states since December of 2018. They spent the majority of this year fighting COVID on the frontlines, while also trying […]
I first met Madeline and Chas back in 2018 when they were about to move to Chicago from Dallas, Texas. We did a fun little Chicago couples session for them to announce their move to the city for Chas to attend law school at the University of Chicago. We instantly hit it off and bonded […]
